CIMMYT is offering a new improved maize hybrid to partners, to scale up production for farmers in the region.
Researchers will source useful gene variations from CGIAR genebanks to develop climate-smart crops.
Agricultural scientist Madhulika Singh shares her experience as the first woman in STEM in her family and in her society in Bihar, India.
Small local seed businesses are considered key to getting new maize hybrids into farmers’ hands and, ultimately, to meeting global food security goals. MasAgro, a partnership between CIMMYT and Mexico’s Department of Agriculture, offers key insights into what has worked and some major challenges that remain.
Discover groundbreaking research from CIMMYT and CGIAR to promote gender equality in agriculture and achieve a sustainable future.
CIMMYT deeply regrets the passing of leading agriculture and forestry research expert Barbara H. Wells
As Director General of the International Potato Center (CIP) and as CGIAR’s Global Director for Genetic Innovation, Wells helped improve the health and livelihoods of millions of people.
New research explores how the adoption of Climate-Smart Agricultural Practices can help address environmental issues, reduce out-migration, and ensure household food security.
Over millennia, natural selection and humans have systematically adapted the plant species that provide food and other vital products, changing their physical and genetic makeup for enhanced productivity, nutrition and resilience. Plant breeders apply science to continue improving crop varieties, making them more productive and better adapted to climate extremes, insects, drought and diseases.
New research highlights opportunities to deepen engagement with private sector for increasing impact from cereal breeding
Contributions reflect the breadth of perspectives and expertise within CGIAR and beyond, calling for more demand-oriented variety development and seed delivery.
CIMMYT is offering a new set of improved maize hybrids to partners, to scale up production for farmers in the region.
Sanjaya Rajaram, former CIMMYT Wheat Program Director, has been recognized with the Padma Bhushan Award for his contributions to wheat improvement worldwide.
Researchers evaluate the use of genomic selection in wheat breeding against deadly fungal disease.
Increasingly unpredictable weather poses challenges for breeding widely-adapted wheat lines, but stress tolerance breeding is boosting wheat’s hardiness under rising temperatures.
Fruits and vegetables are essential, but there are three reasons why it takes cereals to feed the world
In addition to macronutrients and micronutrients, staple cereals are important sources of bioactive food components.
